Volunteers and Client Monitors visit our individuals weekly. Both Volunteers and Client Monitors provide essential conversation, comfort and companionship to each individual.
The Client Monitors are trained by AdvoGuard to additionally review each client's medical records, to have special education that qualifies them to assess the individuals' financial issues and medical treatment plans. The Client Monitors, where necessary, also monitor anti-psychotic medications given to AdvoGuard individuals. This is known as "Rogers Monitoring." The Attorney General of Massachusetts has mandated that our elders be protected from unauthorized use of chemical restraints. In addition to observing the individuals for unwarranted chemical use, the Client Monitors review the medications on a monthly basis to confirm they comply with court-ordered dosing.
The results of AdvoGuard services can be tremendous. One client, instead of being institutionalized, has been able to continue living in her home, simply because AdvoGuard brings her groceries every week and checks on her condition. She had been living in increasing filth and eating cat food. Numerous institutionalized clients have emerged from drug-induced stupor to engage in varying degrees of daily activity and to enjoy our visits.
A client needs eyeglasses? We'll get them for him or her. Dental work? We'll make sure it's provided. Clothing? We'll buy it, or take the individual shopping, if he or she is able.
